Editor's Overview

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is all-new, with a new aluminum body, upgraded 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, and a fantastic new interior that's leagues better than its predecessor. It's virtually unrecognizable as a cousin to the less expensive Ford Expedition, and that's the point. While unwieldly around town, the Navigator and long-wheelbase Navigator L both offer a terrific luxury experience on the open road.

2018 Lincoln navigator - pure luxury.

The navigator epitomizes luxury and comfort. With many children and pets, they all can comfortably fit into the new navigator. Lincoln didn't spare any expense on upgrades and options. Aside from the black reserve editions, my Lincoln doesn't compare to its competition which I have previously owned (escalade, Yukon, Explorer, etc.). The only downfall to the navigator is its sheer size. Being only 5� tall, I have found maneuvering the behemoth around small parking lots very challenging.

Seats > Mid/rear Assembly Nov 13, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 13, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V805000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Lincoln Navigator, and Ford Expedition vehicles. The second row center seat track assemblies may be missing one or both of the J-Channel reinforcement brackets, possibly allowing the seat to move in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash, a seat that moves may not properly restrain the seat occupant, increasing their risk of injury.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row center seat for any missing J-channel reinforcement brackets, replacing the center seat frame assembly as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 17, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S37

Fuel System, Gasoline > Delivery > Fuel Pump Jun 11, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 11, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V392000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Expedition, F-150, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 3.5L GTDI V6 engines. These vehicles have high pressure fuel pump assemblies with welds that can fracture, which may cause an oil or fuel leak.
Consequence:
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the high pressure fuel pump and associated components, free of charge. The recall began July 17, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S17.
chevronDown icon
Visibility > Power Window Devices And Controls Jan 15, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 15, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V058000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles. The second row window control modules may intermittently stop the movement of the power window. If something, such as a finger, is pinched by the window glass, the stopped window control module may prevent the window from automatically reversing. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window Systems."
Consequence:
If the window does not automatically reverse when an obstruction is found, it can increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the second row window electronic control modules, and replace them as necessary based on their build date codes, free of charge. The recall began on February 16, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18C01.

Power Train > Automatic Transmission Apr 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V213000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Ford Expedition and Mustang and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 10-speed automatic transmissions. A roll pin may not have been installed in the transmission, potentially causing a loss of the "Park" function.
Consequence:
Despite the transmission shift lever being placed in 'Park' and the instrument panel display indicating 'Park,' the vehicle may roll away after it has been exited if the parking brake has not been applied, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the transmission to make sure it has the roll pin, installing one if it is missing, free of charge. The recall began on April 13, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S09.
